Released on black vinyl (gatefold sleeve) and includes a bonus album in CD format.

'Dark Tranquillity' are back with their new album "Atoma". Mikael Stanne and Co. are back with a new masterpiece, which puts the crowning touch on their previous discography. "Atoma" was recorded at Rogue Music Studio (with keyboardist Martin Brändström), mastered by Jens Bogren (Moonspell, Kreator, and Paradise Lost) and mixed by none other than David Castillo (Katatonia, Candlemass, and Opeth). The guitarist Niklas Sundin has once again made a brilliant cover. Fans of melodic death metal by bands like Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum, and Soilwork definitely get their money's worth with this album.

Masterpiece

An absolute masterpiece. Catchy, melodic, one of the best albums of 2016

Returned

"Atoma" appeared that way in front of me, how I imagined it, and if not a full-fledged return to the strict order of their traditional melodic death, the combination of classic moves with submerged by a "Construct". And this is where the main challenge to the musicians was to be the ability to weave together harmoniously directness and aggressiveness of the two thousandth work with sparse and inertia predecessor. The problem seemed to be difficult, given the almost antagonistic components, but in this case the only way "through the impossible" can guarantee the strongest material. But first, do not start thinking about this - toothy "Encircled" carries to edrene mother. Secondary? Yes. But after the swamp "Construct" is exactly what you want from the song-opening. In addition to her for at least another "Neutrality" and "The Pitiless" confirm that a melodic death is too early to bury the DT group. Non-stop "fasting" is a guitar at a speed look simply stunning, and the songs are an example of what would happen if "the Construct" overgrown riffs and bristled. Only it is disappointing that neither of the two gothic metal stage directions ( "Our Proof of Life" and "Atoma") does not is a bright event, what were two of their predecessor. They just blend in with the rest of the material, showing a simple qualitative content. In this sense, they are much more successors "Misery's Crown", rather than "Her Silent Language" and "What Only You Know".
